Why we gonna talk about 24 when more important things like DIE HARD versus COMMANDO are on the line??

Music Selection: I fought for love, once. It didn’t end well.

This show is about:

PRETEND FISH YOU ARE SO GOOD.

  • Ian

    Die Hard versus Commando? hmmm I don’t know how … Hans is pretty good as a bad guy but Bennet is also solid. I’m sure he knows when his guns have bullets in them.

  • KirbyKhan

    Bennet doesn’t need the gun.

  • EZE

    He doesn’t need the girl either.

  • Himura

    Random ass question, do any of you guys believe that video games are art?

  • RandomDan

    Dave states that games can be art in a podcast, but he also states that games that call themselves art are just pretentious. To me, art is an object whose worth to the viewer is more than the sum of it’s parts. For me, games at the most can be artistically done, but never be full pieces of art.

    Why is this “are games art” debate (I was about to put debate in quotes too, but that’s just too many quotes!) suddenly surfacing again? Internet, start cycling. I’m much more interested in can my delicious sandwich be considered art?

    Regarding Kiefer sutherland being like 400 years old.

    You wouldn’t say no.

    Regarding games as art:

    Games can be art. It’s not an exclusive club. But in an unfortunately common scenario, anyone who espouses their game to be art is often trying too hard, and their game is art as much as is any college students’ coming of age novel, written between passes on the rotation. In a sentence that doesn’t need a road map: they often aren’t. The classic motifs of art in other media forms tend to be impediments on videogames. It’s a unique, modern medium, and should be treated as such, even if it owes a lot to those older mediums. In much the same way as comics (Graphic Novels if you’re really sensitive about that kind of thing), Video games can be artistic without owing itself to films or novels. They just… don’t do it.

  • Felix Walken

    Strange question.

    Would you guys like to see a remake of Home Alone 1 and 2, where instead of the 2 bumbling idiots as the villains, it would be Kiefer Sutherland/Jack Bauer?

  • The Joel

    No, I do not want to see a movie that is only 5 minutes long and includes the murder of a child.

  • RandomDan

    I don’t understand your question felix. Do you mean to say it would have kiefer playing himself, and another kiefer playing jack bauer? If so, could kiefer also play as the kid?

  • Felix Walken

    I guess what Joel said is right.

    Jack Bauer + kid from Home Alone = 5 minute short video, no matter what tricks are done. Also might involve the dismemberment of child limbs and immense torture.

  • Nick

    Where are your parents?

    *punches kiddy kiefer in the gut*

    WHERE ARE YOUR PARENTS?!

  • RandomDan

    And President Palmer could be the misunderstood Hobo Street cleaner with the heart of gold that saves kiddie kiefer. He would wield that snow shovel like some kind of handheld I.E.D! Also, instead of the McCallister house, it would be the white house.

  • RandomDan

    Who would be the parents though?

  • yanmaman

    @randomdan i dont know about you but i wouldnt WANT to be the parents in that scenario

  • RandomDan

    geena davis and hugh laurie could reprise their seminal roles from stuart little.

  • NOOOOOO!

    Fox to remake action movie ‘Commando’

    Writer and director David Ayer is reportedly writing and directing a remake of action film Commando for 20th Century Fox.

    The original 1985 movie starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as a retired elite commando on a mission to rescue his daughter (Alyssa Milano) from an exiled dictator.

    Ayer, who wrote Training Day and Street Kings, will put a real-world spin on his version, reports Deadline.

    It is said that Ayer’s new hero will be more skilled in weaponry and covert tactics than the character played by Schwarzenegger.

  • Jon

    You guys made me watch Commando again. (Not like I really needed a reason) Goddamn that movie is violent……….and AWESOME. Sawblade upside yo fukkin head!!!
